Step 1: Choose the Right Console Table

Take into consideration size and style of your entryway or area of interest, the console table should fit comfortable without overpowering the space.

Select a console table that complements your overall home décor theme and colour scheme.

Opting for a table with storage options, such as drawers or shelves or some baskets to keep the area organized and clutter-free is a must.

Step 2: Add a Mirror

Paring a console table with a mirror for decorative and practical purposes is always a winner.

Mirrors enhance the visual appeal but can also open an entrance, making it appear larger and brighter.

Choose a mirror that compliments the style of the console table and/or overall décor theme and colour scheme in your home.

Step 3: Add Decorative Layering

Creating visual interest by layering decorative elements, this includes but is not limited to, artwork, vases, candles and diffusers and decorative trays.

Incorporate plants or fresh flowers to bring life and vibrancy to the entrance. A potted plant or a vase of seasonal blooms can add a welcoming touch.
